The security of Employer Online is very important to us, as is protecting the privacy and confidentiality of our members' personal information.
GESB uses up-to-date security measures to help protect your information, including encryption technology, security certificates and firewalls. You can also play a part in security by following some simple rules.
Using Employer Online
Never click a link in an email to go to the login page. Always login by typing www.gesb.com.au into your browser and clicking the login button (Note: emails from GESB will never contain a link directly to Employer Online).
Confirm that your data is encrypted by ensuring a padlock symbol appears at the bottom right hand corner of your browser.
Check your last logged-in date and time (at the top of the screen) whenever you login to ensure it is correct.
Always select 'logout' when you have finished.
Protect your password
Change your password at least every 30 days.
Select a password that is difficult to guess and one that you are not using elsewhere.
Do not use sequences or repeat three (3) or more characters.
Do not use any part of your name, telephone number or date of birth.
Do not disclose your password to anyone, including a work colleague, the Police or a GESB staff member.
Do not write down your password, or disguise it in some other form.
If you suspect that your password has become known to someone else, you should contact us as soon as possible and request to have it changed.
